So I was sent “Just Let it Go” Eye Makeup Remover and Scandaleyes Kohl Eyeliner in black from Rimmel (via influenster) to review. I also purchased two of the new Show Off Lip Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks to try because like everyone else I’ve been obsessed with liquid lipsticks.
The Show Off Lip Velvets have the same angled doe foot applicator with a little hole in the middle to catch the product.
Show Off Lip Velvet in Apollo, Meteoric Matte & Scandaleyes Kohl Eyeliner in Black
I really wanted to love these liquid lipsticks but unfortunately they just didn’t. They never dried down and didn’t have a matte finish at all. Because they never set they moved around on my lips and probably get pretty messy as the day goes on. Apollo was way lighter and chalkier than it seemed in the tube and it really settled into the lip lines and just overall looked patchy and bad. Meteoric Matte was a nice berry color but the formula just did not perform. I would definitely skip these liquid lipsticks if you’re looking for a true matte lip products.
Next up is the “Just Let it Go” Eye Makeup Remover. This remover is labeled as being gentle on the eyes while being effective at removing waterproof eye makeup. Unfortunately, this remover was not effective at removing waterproof anything! I tried to remove the eyeliner that it was sent with and it was a total no go. The formula itself was gentle on the eyes but the effort I had to put into trying to scrub the liner out of my eyes was totally not worth it. This one is another skip for me, you’re much better off just using a little olive oil.
The Scandaleyes Kohl eyeliner was the best performing thing from this bunch of Rimmel products. It applied smoothly. This eyeliner was very soft and could be blended out but I would recommend doing it quickly because once it’s set it’s pretty much budge-proof. This liner is great for the water line.
